happens. thank you. >> all right. >>> president obama got a firsthand look today at parts of new york that were hardest hit by superstorm sandy. thousands of new yorkers, yes, thousands of new yorkers still don't have power two and a half weeks after sandy hit. the storm is raising serious questions about the government's response, even bigger questions about weather patterns, at least for some. let's bring in our white house correspondent brianna keilar -- actually, brianna is not yet available i'm told. but we do expect to get her up soon. we'll speak to brianna keilar momentarily. we'll also have a quick check of some of the day's other top stories. that's coming up including mitt romney, did he hurt himself with gaffes during his presidential campaign? is he hurting the republican party right now with his latest comments, the louisiana governor, bobby jindal, he's standing by to join us live. (splashing)... (child screaming underwater)... (underwater noises). >>> we've reconnected with brianna keilar, our white house correspondent, brianna keilar, is watching what's going on in ne
they feel a little bit in control. >>> right now, president obama is on his way to get a firsthand look at sandy's destruction in new york city. he'll also meet with families still trying to recover. yesterday, the president talked about the superstorm and he also talked about climate change. . >> have been an extraordinarily large number of severe weather events here in north america, but also around the globe. and i am a firm believer that climate change is real that it is impacted by human behavior, and carbon emissions. and as a consequence, i think we've got an obligation to future generations to do something about it. >> he says he's going to sit down with a burge of experts and try to come up with ways to protect our planet. victor blackwell is in staten island, victor, goo morning. i don't suppose people who have like damaged homes from superstorm sandy are thinking much about climate change at the moment though. >> no. maybe that conversation will come, carol, but not today. they're talking about the people who have died in this community. they're talking about this, their busi
. >> all right. also in "newsweek," the question about whether president obama's the lucky general or master of the game and explain to us the focus of the story. >> sort of moving from the unlucky general -- >> yes, who knew that generals wither going to be such an issue this week. really examines that charge in a sense that obama's always been about luck. he even became a senator in illinois out of luck because his opponent was mad in scandal. there have been many times when it seems as if obama has been saved by the gaunt. he was in a bad trajectory after the debate and hurricane sandy happened and suddenly he was thrust into a very presidential spotlight that made him look better. but what concludes at the end, yes, he has had elements of luck in his career, but this is really about opportunity meeting preparation. and you have to make your luck, you know. willing to be lucky. obama is very, very brilliant, i think, at making his own luck by preparation and as you saw that with osama bin laden, that was long, long in the preparation. long in the preparation. and as we saw in th
. we do want to know your thoughts. now, the president, of course, came right out and defended secretary -- ambassador rice. can we hear that first clip, dan. >> obama: let me say specifically about susan rice, she has do not exemplary work. she has represented the united states and our interests in the united nations with skill and professionalism and toughness and grace. >> john: well-spoken. he came out a few minutes later and this, i guess would probably be the clip of the day yesterday where we saw the guy we voted for in 2008. >> obama: if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador? who had nothing to do with benghazi? and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received? and besmirch her reputation? it is outrageous. >> john: dan, it seems pretty open and shut to me. what's your take? >> absolutely. >> john: i don't know how
, wisdom and colonel for president obama that he will do what is right in your eyes for your people. i close by asking, god, please, god, please, god, please, continue to bless america, and i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the chair recognizes the gentleman from puerto rico, mr. pierluisi. mr. pierluisi: mr. speaker, puerto rico recently held -- i want to convey to the american public, describe their significance and outline the next steps i will take. as background, puerto rico has been a u.s. territory since 1898. the island is home to 3.7 million american citizens who cannot vote for president, are not represented in the senate, and elect a nonvoting member to the house. federal law is supreme in puerto rico but its residents are treated unequally under many federal programs. voters were first asked whether they want puerto rico to remain a territory. over 1.7 million people answered. which is about 75% of registered voters on the island. 54% said they did not want the current status to continue while 46% said they did. voters were then asked to express their preference among
, pennsylvania's arlen specter and bob bennett of utah lost their re-election bids in 2010. all right, enough of that real news, we'll gather around the water cooler and talk about the angry letters that the white house has been receiving since president obama's re-election. many solidly conservative states have been flooding the white house's we the people website with petition requests to secede from the union of the united states. for help on that john stuart n >> they have received petitions from 20 states who would like to cede from the union. >> wait. i'm not sure exactly which 20 states those are or which people they are in those states but i think i can express how i feel about these states and people in the words of the great william wonka. >> stop, don't come back. [ applause ] >> at least now i'm beginning to understand why southern states were always so hesitant to get rid of the confederate flag. it was like keeping your fat pants after you lose some weight. you're happy now with the new you but pretty soon you'll need those fat pants again. oh, domino's in staten island. >> alwa
of president obama, the combination of spending cuts and tax increases and new revenue right? which has got to be the solution. >> absolutely. i think what we have to be careful of is that these cuts are proper cuts that they don't create havoc in the lives of the most vulnerable and low income individuals. >> bill: that's what i wanted to ask you about. do we know where these cuts would hit and who would be hardest hit by them? >> well, of course, across-the-board cuts, sequestration takes place, which of course, i could not support we're going to see this 8% to 10% cut across the board. so you're going to see children's programs cut. you're going to see other cuts, some terrible, terrible cuts take place. that people really cannot tolerate. of course, we need to -- and i still say we need to make sure defense cuts are on the table because we're look at a defense budget that's full of waste fraud and abuse. and that's full of billions of dollars that are there for cold war era weapons systems research that doesn't ma
to think it meant when a presidential candidate won 332 electoral college votes and he thought this right up until the day before the election. >> all of my thinking says romney big. not even close. 300 plus electoral votes for romney. >> even though president obama very clearly ran on raising income tax rates for top earners, paul ryan claims he is not so sure that's what america actually voted for. >> his argument is people voted for him because they believe tax rates should be raised. do you disagree? >> i don't know if i agree with that. we have divided government, they also voted for a clear majority. >> never mind that more votes were cast for democrats in the house of representatives than republicans. in the house, republicans maintained their majority, strictly through gerrymandering their districts, and never mind that election exit polls show that 13% of voters said they should increase all tax rates on everyone, and another 47% said increase tax rates for incomes over 250,000, so that adds up to 60% of americans in favor of at least the obama tax rate increases and some of them
not know. is there any talk about revenue spending, creating job programs. when president obama came into office, the stimulus was part of his agenda. as you look at the financial situation, is there talk of big spending right now? guest: there is talk of job training and infrastructure -- from this increased revenue. is that something congress can agree on? i think that in this climate of austerity, as people are starting to think about the deficit, i do not think we will necessarily see a large-scale stimulus like the one we have before. there is a fascinating statistic and a national journal story that they now spend $7 on programs for senior citizens and elderly people for every $1 it spends on young people. and at $1 goes to everything from education, student loans, job training. so the federal government spending at this point is really skewed towards taking care of the older population of versus helping the younger ones succeed. that'll be a tricky thing moving forward. alternately, to take care of older people you need to of younger people have a good jobs and making good wag
of medicare to extended for another decade and provide benefits immediately for seniors right now. republicans took that same money and gave tax cuts to the rich. that was a message that outside money spent a fortune to misrepresent. that is why the election of barack obama was so very important. to protect medicare -- even though we could not get the majority, we knew when he won that many of the issues, affordable care, medicare, were protected. we had a different view of what happened that day. we saw some of the members that we elective, the intellect we brought in here. it is not about quantity for us so much as the policy of leadership, the quality of our members, the ideas that they had, the talent that they bring, the commitment and dedication to a better future. we may not have the majority, we may not have the gavel, but we have the unity. we have the unity to go fourth, create jobs, build our economy, simple as abc. make it in america, build the infrastructure of america, and tax cuts for the middle-class. tax cuts for the middle-class. we can do that, prevent us from going over the
spokesman and asked how president obama is being kept informed about the crisis. >> no crisis in the world would allow rocket fire indiscriminately into their country. we support israel's right to defend itself and, you know, have been in constant contact with them. that said we think everyone will benefit. >> what does constant contact meet? phone conversations with the prime minister? >> the president has been talking to president benjamin netanyahu daily, talked to president morrissey of egypt, to the prime minister and talking to people that have a relationship with hamas to tell them that de-escalation is in everyone's interests. this will only lead to civilian casualties. i don't mean to draw false equivalents. this started because hamas is raining rockets down into civilian populations and they have to stop. >> sounds like the president believes hamas has to basically ceasefire first. >> hamas started the conflict and they need to stop raining rocket fire down into israeli population centers. now you asked about how the president is being kept abreast. the president's national secur
that now. >> if the grand bargain that president obama and speaker boehner were talking about two years ago were put back on the table right now, with the house republican conference that speaker boehner? the $800 billion. >> through growth, deductions, loopholes, so forth. i have not what this vote. >> she may have to. >> tell me about that. the house republicans are poised to move in that direction. is the speaker hunting out a head of the pack? i do not think so. he is leading the house in a way. he is reflecting what a majority of house republicans are. >> for anyone suggest that speaker boehner the o's and without full support of the republicans would be wrong to attack that would be wrong. what is the speaker doing today? he went out after the president's victory on tuesday. he went to the cameras, offered sincere congratulations, and laid out a pathway for a way for us to mat get out of this. it was a good way. there is some language about compromise and common ground. we have to figure out a way to avoid this fiscal cliff and all the trauma that would ensue if we go over it. the spe
' swing. i heard that. >>> right now on "amount reports" trading fire. israel's air strikes counter hamas rockets. >> i very much hope over the coming days we can achieve this issue on a basis that is sustainable. >> president obama, who strongly endorses israel's campaign, today arrived in cambodia, the first american president to visit that country. hours earlier, he became the first u.s. president to visit myanmar, known as
obama and speaker boehner were talking about two years ago, were put back on the table right now, with the house up in conference at speaker boehner allowing him to sign the deal? >> so in other words, 800 billion, revenue increases through growth and through deductions and so forth, i need to loopholes and so forth, i'm not with this vote on his face because you might have to spend tell me about that, brother. i got that figured out. i think house republicans are poised to clean up in that direction. so in other words, are you asking me, is the speaker had out ahead of the pack? i don't think so. i think he's leading the house anyway, and i think he's reflecting where majority of house republicans are? >> for anyone who's just speaker boehner goes into those talks with out full throated support of house republicans conference, that would be wrung? >> that would be wrong. .. the agenda that dave as the committee has laid out over the past two years and let's focus on making the u.s. tax code the most competitive tax jurisdiction of the world. >> let me ask you some of the specifi

environment be easier for us. as a small business owner it's very difficult right now. we don't know where taxes are going, we don't know the situation with healthcare, regulations are increasing every day. say, hey, listen mr. obama, look what happened over the last four years. businesses had to cutback and stop spending. and by doing that a lot of corporations actually inc increased their bottom line. what the government wants to do is bring in more revenue by taxing but keep spending the same amount. at the end of the day nothing changes. they need to give president obama a business 101 course, stop spending and bring in more revenue. >> the budget is actually going to grow even if the sequester were to go into place okay. the budget would grow. the federal government would continue spending even more. we are on a trajectory that is unsustainable here. bill: could you bend that curve with different policy? >> sure, i am ever hopeful that, and you allowed american business to be incensted to do business, brings would tkpwroerbgs it would list government revenues, it would lift this econo
